Chain gang!

15th May 2012

About this memory

Pupils from George Watson's College attending a 'fascinating feast' at Riddle's Court. During this recreation of a banquet, attended by James VI in the 1590s, a chain of pupils worked out how long it would have taken to carry water by hand from a well head in the Lawnmarket to supply the event.
